Pogrebnyak determined to secure permanent move to Premier League

The Russian striker has revealed that he still desires a switch to England after enjoying his spell at Fulham, despite his potential move to Craven Cottage falling through

Pavel Pogrebnyak has spoken of his determination to push through a move to to the Premier League after enjoying his short spell at Fulham last season.

Despite his successful term at Craven Cottage he is yet to secure a move to the club but still holds hopes that he can strike up a deal with another side in the English top flight.

The Russian is now without a club and is weighing up his options but is reluctant to move away from England, but hopes he can secure a club before the start of Euro 2012.

"After three or four months, I feel that I have found my place in England and I want to play in this league," Pogrebnyak told Sport-Express.

"I feel great desire and strength inside me and my age will not work against me.

Pavel Pogrebnyak is 6/1 with William Hill to open the scoring when Russia face Czech Republic at Euro 2012 on June 8.

"We couldn't agree anything with Fulham so far, but I hope everything will be alright.

"If I don't play for Fulham, I hope to find another team.

"It would be good to sort this out before the European Championship, because there is a risk there. Anything could happen, and if you get injured then no-one will want to sign you.

"Last year I said I didn't want to go back to Russia and since then Russian football hasn't really progressed.

"If you play in England, that's the best thing that can happen to you. You have to take this chance."
